This is a book of cross-cultural mini-dramas, written by Arley Levno, Ph.D.,(professor emeritus, Towson University, Towson, MD) in which an American meets a French person, resulting in a cultural conflict or misunderstanding. The reader tries to determine the reason (A, B, or C) for the conflict, before the correct answer is given with a full explanation and resolution of the conflict. Virtually all of the mini-dramas were drawn from the author's 2 years teaching and studying in Paris, as well as his colleagues' and students'experiences. Arley levno's first book of cross-cultural mini-dramas,"Rencontres culturelles", published by the National Textbook Co.(1977, 1987), later acquired by McGraw-Hill (1987), was used extensively throughout the United States in colleges and high schools. This new book of all new mini-dramas is written entirely in English in order to reach a larger audience interested in contrasting cultural values, from which we can all gain invaluable new perspectives on life.
